Recognising the demand for online training and support in an increasingly digital world, the R107.9 million project will see Black Umbrellas further its small business development programme in which 100% Black-owned SMEs may receive support via Black Umbrella’s nine physical and virtual incubators.

The Jobs Fund is a R9 billion fund established by the South African Government to support innovative initiatives and approaches to job creation with a particular focus on women, youth and historically disadvantaged South Africans.
